going out there and just being consistent and going out there and playing football. you know, i love my team, man, i go out there and play hard for those guys. >> michele: you told me earlier that really until you guys win in the postseason, people aren't maybe going to give you the liftlif legislatesy. at 8-0 how good are the falcons? >> we are starting to be a good football team and that is good, man, we need these kind of wins so we in the playoffs we can win them so we doing a good job right now. >> michele: roddy, congratulations. >> thank you. >> michele: over to julio jones now. earlier in the game a look at on the receivers as dallas was shutting down the run. how did you succeed in those circumstances? >> the preparation throughout the week. practice. matt comfortable throwing the deep ball. you know? he going to take us over there. if it's one-on-one matchups he just throw it up there and let us make a play and what i did early on. >> michele: playing alongside roddy white. matt has told us that you might
8:31 pm
be the most improved player on this team. what is it like to have roddy white next to you and matt ryan throwing to you and how have they contributed to that? >> a great mentors. i come out here, i don't have any pressure on me. i just got to come out here and just play. me i put pressure on myself because i don't want want to let the guys next to me down. glad we got a "w" tonight. >> michele: you didn't let anyone down tonight. congratulations, julio. >> michele, thanks. tony dungy, your reaction to tonight's game. a falcon win and cowboy loss. >> bob, what we saw tonight, again, was just demonstration of the difference between atlanta and dallas. atlanta is making those plays in the fourth quarter to win close games. dallas, as we talked about on the pregame show, as cris talked about in the fourth quarter when they had an opportunity, just can't make the fundamental plays. orlando scandrick a chance to stop a drive and misses a tackle and another third down situation
8:32 pm
and he grabs a jersey. this is is what has happened to dallas over and over in the fourth quarter. they just can't make the fundamental play in the fourth quarter to win it. >> now the giants lost at home today. eli manning had an off day. pittsburgh came in and won. we have seen the giants stumble before at mid season. but the question would be -- could any of the other teams in the division take advantage? >> yeah, i believe giants fans are a little bit uneasy today because they have seen this, where the giants have played so well early in the year, but now where they normally are taking advantage of that fourth quarter eli manning game winning drive, they couldn't get it today. just too much pressure on eli and coming back to the pack a little bit. now, dallas blew a golden opportunity tonight to get back to within one game in the loss column. philadelphia has a big game tomorrow in new orleans that, all of a sudden, is that much bigger. if one of these teams can get going, they possibly can catch the giants.
8:33 pm
giants have to right the ship. >> but the chances of that seem slim. not the giants righting the ship but the cowboys or the eagles and certainly not washington catching them. you still have to like the giants situation in their division. tony, thanks very much. we turn to mike florio of pro football talk. mike, take us through some of today's most important injuries. >> bob, running back darren mcfadden of the raiders has had several injuries over the course of his career and has another one and suffered ankle injury on sunday in the loss to the buccaneers and his status is reportedly week-to-week. the green bay packers linebacker clay moouts left today's game with a hamstring injury. also receiver jordy nelson came into the game with a hamstring injury and left early with a sprained ankle. for the steelers, receiver antonio brown left the game with an ankle injury and afterward said it's high ankle sprain. i'm told it's not and he can play next monday night against the kansas city chiefs. redskins quarterback robert griffin iii had x-rays after today's loss to the panthers on his ribs. x-rays are negative. he says he is fine but i'm told

8:45 pm
many are still undecide and even more who may not know much about the proposition. >> it is unfortunate that so many more important issues like these are below the radar, because so many questions are put before the voters all at once and it leaves to us wonder at once if we are asking too much of the voters on one hand, and whether the voters don't take the issue seriously enough on the other. >> reporter: those who want to eliminate the death penalty took their fight to church today in southern california appealing to people's faith and sense of justice. naacp president ben jelous reminded the parishioners that african-americans are executed at a disproportionate rate. and proponents say that getting rid of the death penalty would save the state more than $100 million and e lliminate the possibility that an inmate could be put to death. >> it is a death penalty is a punishment for people of color and poor people of all colors.
